So far this is my favorite song from Weird Al's new album.
 
2014-07-18 10:21:47 AM
Fun stuff.

Awesome video, instant classic. Nice cameos, including Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon as the men in black.

Except it's not posted to YouTube.  Also, it seems like the video quality is going down on these videos each day.  Tacky and Foil were in full HD, Handy was in lesser quality on Yahoo, and the quality of Sports Song is kind of bad when in full-screen.  I guess that's the downside of partnering with different sites every day.  Hopefully after this week, all of them get uploaded to Al's YouTube channel in HD.

I was kind of hoping Sports Song would be one of the songs not getting a video.  It's not a bad song, it's just not nearly as great as others on the album.  And the video was pretty much a straightforward marching band video.

Could you link to his channel that is posting them?  I see the AlYankovicVevo channel has Word Crimes up.  The main AlYankovic channel hasn't uploaded any.

Never liked Yankovic.  Never saw any humor in any of his work.

I was just basing it off of the Weirdal.com thing

all of the videos there except for sports song are linked to youtube.

might be the Vevo channel or something though.

Even WeirdAl.com only has Foil linked to YouTube.  The rest are linked directly to Vevo, Yahoo, Nerdist, and FoD.

I was mistaken.

Foil and Word Crimes are on youtube it seems. (WC on the Vevo channel)

Liked the video.

Especially since it confirmed what I always suspected about Patton Oswalt.

Watching that, I am now expecting the Ohio State University marching band to perform it at a halftime show.

That's just what David Icke wants you to think.

Word Crimes is still my fav, but this one was good as it went a direction I wasn't expecting. Sports Song was a bit lame.

Watch out. Some people will take serious offense to you not liking something they like. Next thing you know, you're being stalked by people who can't stop themselves from following you around to gripe about your every opinion. Soon, you're saying nasty things because you're sick to death of these creeps jumping on your dick every time you express an opinion.

It's a slippery slope, dude.

I hope they do, along with plenty of other bands.  Unfortunately, I totally see the first attempt at it coming from those assholes with the shiatty tree mascot.

I simply adore Muta and can't wait to see what he'll post in the next Weird Al thread.
 
2014-07-19 01:58:51 PM
I was kind of "meh" about it, but my wife loved it.

Having a wife that likes Weird Al even more than more me is like winning the lottery. Twice. On the same day.
 
2014-07-19 02:57:25 PM
First World Problems is up.  Pretty good.  Certainly a lot better than Sports Song was.

Probably fair to say that you don't like the concept of satirizing popular songs in general.

I like this song, but I don't really see how it is a satire of Royals, aside from using the same tune. It doesn't poke fun at the subject of the original song or Lorde herself. He's making fun of conspiracy theorists. I think Yankovich is right in his practice of getting the permission of the rights holders to do his work, otherwise I think he'd be very close to falling outside the fair use exception for works of parody.
